  1. Andre's rating of the film White Zombie

    Still full of dread-inducing after 80 years, full of vivid fairy-tale imagery, and a genuinely creepy atmosphere

  2. Aardsy's rating of the film White Zombie

    The sets! The mood! The terrible acting!

  3. Stian Gledje Bekkvik's rating of the film White Zombie

  4. Duncan Gray's rating of the film White Zombie

    Cinema's first zombie movie! How old is it? So old that it predates when zombie meant Romero's flesh-eaters, and instead was rooted in Haitian voodoo. The best and worst pre-Code tendencies: stiff writing and acting, but frequently an inventive shot or an eerie bit of sound design, and always a perverse undercurrent from this story about killing your crush so you can make them a reanimated slave. Fun time had by all.

  5. RoRoRoro's rating of the film White Zombie

  6. Chilton's rating of the film White Zombie

    A bit dated now unfortunately, still some visual treats in the second half of the film.

  7. Magic Lantern Alison's rating of the film White Zombie

    What a well-crafted little film! Bela Lugosi is wonderfully evil.

  8. Matthew Horvath's rating of the film White Zombie

    "For you, my friend, they are the angels of death!" Lugosi kicks serious ass in this flick! For what should have been some Grade-Z-Talkie, the Halperin Bros. were pretty damned groundbreaking. There's some truly creepy shots in this. Good commentary on what it means to possess someone; "I thought that beauty alone would satisfy. But the soul is gone. I can't bear those empty, staring eyes."

  9. Tabikenezer von Higglesbloom's rating of the film White Zombie

    Jean Rollin considered this the perfect film and that tickles me to no end. VIVA

  10. Rattzz Matanzano's rating of the film White Zombie

  11. Shelley's rating of the film White Zombie

    The only creepy part about this film was that horrible, creaking noise that the mill made.

  12. Samuel Andrade's rating of the film White Zombie

    ★★★ it's a nice night for a zombie wedding.

  13. mjgildea's rating of the film White Zombie

    2 1/2 out of 5 stars. A tough watch with brutal story pacing which is a classic example of why I'm not a fan of movies from the early 30s. On the plus side some of the imagery is fantastic. It kind of felt like Fritz Lang making Dracula. White Zombie is more of a museum piece than a work of art but still worth a look.

  14. Joks's rating of the film White Zombie

    Kino is releasing this on blu-ray in January

  15. film_lies101's rating of the film White Zombie

    Lugosi and atmosphere are great, everything else is kind of shit

  16. Matthew_Lucas's rating of the film White Zombie

    Bela Lugosi stars in the very first zombie movie, which introduced the Haitian legend to the world in 1932. When a young couple travels to Haiti to get married, a jealous benefactor brings Lugosi's creepy zombie slave driver in to curse the woman so he can keep her as his own. A bit stiff in places, but there are some interesting visual things going on here, as well as a terrifically edited, nail biting finale.

  17. Cassandra Taylor's rating of the film White Zombie

    Interesting movie about how you get exactly what you wish for.

  18. Astrojanitor's rating of the film White Zombie

    creaky as all get out--but the combination of Lugosi and the inventive visual scheme make this mandatory classic horror

  19. Kyle Chiba's rating of the film White Zombie

    Worth a watch but offers little rewatchability for me. Theres some good atmosphere at times and I liked the creepy extreme close ups of Bela Lugosi's eyes as well as the set design. The finale was quite memorable.

  20. Brendan's rating of the film White Zombie

    It drags in the second half quite badly, but White Zombie has some truly great and unforgettable moments and images, and is still worth watching if you're into classic horror.

  21. markdeniz's rating of the film White Zombie

    I know it's a classic and I know it's Lugosi but it's actually quite hard to watch in 2010 and has aged much worse than 'I Walked with a Zombie', some of the dramatic pauses are a little too long and a little too dramatic but it does have charm, it does have character and for its time it must have been a hell of a film!

  22. Christopher R. Smith's rating of the film White Zombie

    It's horribly dated and excruciatingly slow-paced by modern standards - this is one film that has not aged well. But the lavish stage-bound sets and overwrought performances sometimes reach a strange almost surreal quality that makes for some very memorable gothic imagery. Maybe more interesting as a historical relic than as entertainment, but those with a taste for classic horror will find a lot to savor here.
